Golf Starts PC/GA "Day" with a Win

Not that anyone minds, but the moniker PC/GA "Day" is slightly misleading. The competition began Tuesday and the Quakers seized a 1-0 lead.

Golf was the sport, darn near perfect was the weather, Meadowlands Country Club (in Blue Bell) was the site, match play over nine holes was the system and victory was claimed by a 5-3 score.

PC won four matches and Germantown Academy took two. Two finished "all square" -- golf's term for tied -- and those results added two half-points to each team's score.
The winners for coaches Travis Larabee and Val Erdmanis were junior Brian Isztwan (1 up), junior Noah Schwartz (3 & 1), senior Joey Centeno (1 up) and junior Dante DiStefano (4 & 2). The all square guys were soph Dylan Topaz and junior Blake Target.
Erdmanis reported that Isztwan, Schwartz and Centeno all trailed in the early going before staging rallies.

Also Tuesday, on Maguire Field, PC hosted SCH Academy in the boys soccer quarterfinal round of the PAISAA Tournament. That result was a 1-0 win thanks to a first-half goal by senior Max Jacobs that was the very definition of unassisted. He gained control of the ball near midfield and maneuvered all the way down before pounding the net.

Senior Jay Jennings notched the shutout, collecting five saves.

Boys water polo lost to Haverford 12-9. Logan Wolfington and Evan McFadden chipped in with 3 goals each.
